2:00 am
>> todd: a fox news alert. title 42 set to end in two days as border towns see an explosion of migrants and governor greg abbott predicts total chaos is about to ensue. you are watching "fox & friends first" on the monday morning. i am todd piro. good to be with you. >> ashley: i'm ashley strohmier in for carley shimkus. the mayor of el paso has declared a state emergency and they do believe they are ready for what's to come in just 48 hours. >> the influx will be incredible. it'll be huge.
2:01 am
some of our federal partners really believe that on wednesday our numbers will go from 2500 to 4,000, 5,000, maybe 6,000. when i asked them if they believe they can handle it today, the answer was no. >> ashley: alexandria hoff's live in washington with more. good morning. >> good morning, ashley, todd. this is a crisis of morale for border patrol agents have been many ways been dealing with a flood and must now brace for what could be a tsunami. you can see a processing center in el paso stretched far beyond capacity. texas state rep tony gonzalez shot the video and said around that time there were 4600 migrants in federal custody, almost five times the state capacity for that location. that was on friday, just one day before the city of el paso declared a state of emergency. here's governor greg abbott. >> if the courts do not intervene and put a halt to the removal of title 42, it's going to be total chaos.
2:02 am
>> title 42 is set to expire in just two days. the term bureau public health order allowed for the rapid return of hundreds of thousands of migrants who have flooded the southern border. if and when it ends, which it appears it's going to, 42,000 people are expected to enter into the u.s. per day. that's 420,000 a month over 5 million a year. congressman chip roy weighed in. >> my g.o.p. colleagues in the texas delegation got together and introduce what we called the texas border plane. we know what to do. the site work under the trump administration, but it's also common sense. we need policies that will actually work. what these have to be our turn away and detain, not apprehend . speak up but maybe a new policy is not necessary. according to democratic senator sherrod brown, the crisis at the border is just a fringe issue that for some reason he hasn't heard a lot about. >> i don't hear a lot about immigration from voters except people on the far right that
2:03 am
always want to gain political advantage. >> as for the biden administration, human crisis taking place has not been reason enough to visit the southern border, but enough to put the white house on the defense. >> simply because people don't see the president at the border doesn't mean that he's not working. >> right. well, why doesn't he go to the border? he was just in arizona. why wasn't it worth his time? >> is that the best use of resources? all the resources that are diverted on the ground with the president makes a visit. >> is that why he didn't go? >> i can't speak to why he has or has not gone. >> today president biden will meet with the president of ecuador. guys? >> ashley: alexandria, thanks so much. when she says "i can't speak for the president," somebody has to speak for him if he's not going to do it. everybody's wondering what he's doing. the rancher we have from arizona aand a 4:00 hour, he said he is doing something. he is suing arizona from putting
2:04 am
detainees at the border, which defeats the purpose of doing anything to really help the situation. but we need to talk about title 42 ending and all the implications this could bring, the humanitarian crisis, think about all of the people and especially women and young girls who are going to be traffic by the cartel. think about all of the diseases that are going to be unaccounted for that they are bringing into our country. yet you have the cdc telling people to mask up, you have these vaccine passports. that was ridiculous. these people need to be accounted for and they need to be monitored just like everyone else in the united states. but el paso is the one i think is very concerning. i swear it's on the verge of imploding. when you hear the mayor talking about how they just cannot deal with this, all their shelters are at capacity, all the places where the migrants go to be processed, they are over capacity. you hear all these people talking about this, and it's
2:05 am
disheartening to hear the button white house say, "we can't speak for him, he's doing something about it, he's been preparing for months," yet he hasn't gone down there. and where is kamala harris? >> todd: the border czar? >> ashley: yeah! >> todd: you bring up interesting points about the impact. this is going to have impacts for state and local law enforcement not just at the border before our entire nation. you mentioned the humanitarian aspect. some of these migrants will commit crimes and that's going to impact the american citizen, but a lot of these migrants themselves would leave victims of crimes. he also mentioned the rancher we talk to you. here's what he told us about exactly what he sees every single day. watch. >> they are processing them, but they have to turn them loose ones they are processed. three-time convicted felons in the u.s., that's the only ones they can detain. i have a friend who has a ranch right on the border. they are catching 100 a day on his ranch.
2:06 am
>> todd: let's talk about the processing you mention. that's a key word. you're going to see this push from democrats to say, "it's all about funding. republicans don't want to give the funding." that's why it's crucial you heard chip roy what he said they are. they can't just give away the money without a guarantee of border security in return. otherwise, democrats are just going to take this funding and use it to process these migrants more quickly to enter, at which point they are free to go about their business and do whatever they want. one final point, ashley -- democrats are clearly backed into a corner on this. they can't come up with a good argument, so they use that same old trope you heard sherrod brown say. that is a far right issue. tell that to the texas democrats who are begging this white house to do something. that's not a fireeye issue if it's coming from the texas democrats. >> ashley: one more point and then we will move on, that you talked about the funding they are asking for. what about mayor eric adams? he's complaining about 30,000
2:07 am
migrants being sent to his century city of 8 million people. you'd think they'd be able to fund that. when you compare to the hundreds of thousands -- i think it is somewhere around 500,000 in el paso. i could be a little off on that. but it's nowhere near the 8 million in new york, and he's asking for a billion dollars to help with that. >> todd: he's calling out kathy hochul and president biden. there's a crack in the democratic armor. let's see what happens. meantime, turn into a fox rather late. adam klotz tracking and other major winter storm expected to hit over christmas weekend. great if you're a child, bad if you're in adulthood needs to travel. >> if you want a white christmas, this might be good news for you, but i'm talking really cold air that unfortunately i'm sorry about, because we have big winter-like temperatures out there this morning. some real cold air going to be driven by winds especially in the northern plains, stretching from montana up through the dakotas. these are windchill advisories because boy, is it cold now, and boy, is going to be called the

twitters officials have deleted the tweet supporting the policy. >> todd: ended twitter files are being released? >> that's right, the latest batch showed that the fbi pressured twitter in place for answers on foreign influence. in july 2020, the bureau sent a series of questions. "in what ways and by what measures did you see official propaganda actors as less active than other groups on your platform? how do you differentiate official propaganda actors from foreign state actors? that included a list of public references including an article from "the wall street journal." twitter's former head of trust and safety claims he was stunned by this request, writing an email to the staffers, "i am frankly perplexed by the request, seeming like moths like something we would get from a correctional committee than the bureau. ohio carly's been jim jordan valid to investigate the fbi agent who met weekly with

2:26 am
from happening again? >> i'm not a big supporter of congressional hearings, but in this case, more transparency, more sunlight on this, we need to have more of that. because, gosh, the fbi has no business being involved in suppressing free speech. i can understand if they had a counterintelligence operation and they saw that some russian intelligence officers or russian intelligence operations were attempting to use twitter to spread misinformation that was advantageous to russia or could undermine our democracy. but i can't see any other scenario where they could or would or should then u.s. citizens or ban any type of free-speech dialogue. never seen it in my entire career, my 40 years in law enforcement. i've just never seen this. it's not a proper role for my former agency, which i love. i'm looking forward to some hearings. >> todd: i'm trying to put myself in your position.
2:27 am
assistant director of the fbi. does this fbi permutation over the last 4-5 years resemble in any way, shape, or form the bureau that you are part of? >> is hard to recognize. of course, i'm part of the retired agent network, particularly executives who retired at high levels. i talked to people inside the bureau, people recently retired, and people who have traditionally supported the fbi out there in the law enforcement community in the community at large. they are scratching their heads, they are perplexed. the fbi is hemorrhaging supporters because somehow their leadership has put them in the middle of political cases in the political arena, which i never saw in my 25 years of active service. and i haven't seen it until very recently. i think it started possibly under james comey and it has extended forward. all the top level fbi executive

2:29 am
expected to appear in court today. what's next in this saga? do you anticipate new charges? >> i do. i think it's a wise move on his part to go ahead and waive the extradition, lest he cool his heels in a less than pleasant prison in the bahamas as opposed to getting to the u.s. and facing his charges and getting on with it. i expect to see a wave of superseding indictment's once he gets up to the united states. i think the charges he's facing right now are what we call placeholders. they are just to get him extradited and get him in the criminal justice system. it was pretty quick in terms of the investigation. as you apply it to white-collar crime type of cases, which are fairly complex, this one being no exception. i think there will be a wave of superseding indictments, and dozens and dozens of charges. i think it is a slam-dunk situation, because you have a
2:30 am
bankruptcy trustee who is fully cooperating with the fbi investigation and the sec investigation. so you don't have to fight for documents or for books and records from that sort of thing. >> ashley: it's going to be interesting to see this all unfold, both stories. thanks for getting up with us this morning. we appreciate it. >> thank you. >> ashley: new surveillance video shows two of the murdered idaho students talking about a mystery man hours before they were killed. we will ask a former homicide detective what he thinks about this new evidence. >> todd: plus, did you see this? >> he had won the purple heart and the battle of the bulge. i said, "uncle frank, you will knock this." and he said, "i don't want the damn thing." >> todd: president biden raising eyebrows with a story about awarding his uncle a purple heart. purple heart. but a lot of details, and joe concha here to break it down joe concha here to break it down ♪ ♪ so to help you remember that liberty mutual customizes your home insurance,

certainly changing. good morning. obviously you want to process the immediate scene but there is typically an external team that walks the streets and retraces the steps. but anyone who has a doorbell camera now, there is audio. boy, that's a valuable nugget, or at least it appears to be, for police to look into who this adam is, and it doesn't sound like he got the best of news when they said they told him everything. it could be positive or negative. but police are going to want to scrub that back. i think they will be able to identify this adam fairly quickly. they will have all the victims 'cell phones and social media information, access to surviving friends and families, to determine exactly who this person was. so i think they will be able to chase that down pretty quick, identify who it is, and look into that. >> ashley: right, we can only hope and pray that leads to some information. it's new information, so that's

2:39 am
from last week, do you foresee this going cold or do you think you will get a suspect in this? >> obviously there's never any timeline. let me say this, police are not in the business of naming a suspect. everyone wants them to name a suspect. they name a suspect when they are ready to put handcuffs on them and they have a warrant in their hand. there's no benefit unless the person has left the country or is in hiding, but typically they will already have a warrant. i like a lot of the moves the police department did, getting the resources quickly. i do foresee this coming to a close at some point. >> ashley: that is fortunate news, especially coming to the christmas holiday. and these families don't have their loved ones because of this horrific crime that happened. thanks for getting up with us this morning. have a good day. seek a very sad. see you. >> ashley: a conservative comic book writer getting booted from kickstarter because his newest book about a border patrol agent has been labeled racist. >> todd: here to respond, keep

and many of the comics are far more entertaining and better illustrated than those being produced by the big two. >> todd: people turn to comics as a form of entertainment. this is just the latest example of the entertainment industry ignoring what the people want and focusing on a very cheap signaling woke agenda. the proof is in the pudding. they are suffering, but sadly, you are suffering. hopefully you can get this crowdfunding going, make money for yourself, and put out stuff that champions the private american, champions americana, like you're doing. thank you, sir. >> thank you. >> todd: we are just two days away from the end of title 42 and some in the media are suggesting republicans are responsible for the crisis happening on joe biden's watch. >> i don't think i have ever heard president biden say, "we have an open border, come on over." the but people i have heard saye

>> todd: president biden raising questions over this story where he claims he awarded his uncle a purple heart during his vice presidency. >> he had a purple heart he won it in the battle of buttigieg. he said i won it and i don't want the damn thing. i'm serious he said i don't want it. >> critics were quick to question the fact since biden was vice president in 2008 but his uncle passed away in 999. joe con chat author of "come on, man" town hall for veterans he was talking about something else that he got wrong people are concerned is he just exaggerating? even if he is, that's concerning, too.
2:56 am
or does he not know what he is talking about? >> yeah, i'm not going to chalk up the age thing to this, carley. because joe biden, as i talk about in the book has done this his whole life, since since his 20 compulsive liar about everything particularly personal stuff call unforced errors. talks about things awarding purple hearts to his uncle when his uncle died nine years prior before he could even do that it's so insulting to all the military families that are out there only for their own ego a lot more press coverage than we are seeing on this. >> todd: to be clear we have lovely ashley showroom than carley shimkus.

doing much reporting at all from the border over the last couple of years the way say bill melugin has showing millions of illegal migrants entering into this country illegally under this administration. to say deny what is happening here and ignore the fact that come into this country and killing hundreds of thousands of people in the last two years approach second degree 50,000 now that's a disservice to the public martha raddatz who is supposed to be one of the objective ones i guess serve here. oh, you are exaggerating this to try to scare people. it's not an exaggeration when you have nearly 5 million people crossing into this border that is equivalent to the population of the entire country of ireland, yeah, that sounds like an open border to me joe biden's open border policies are reason.
